Chainring prices

The middle chainring on my tiagra triple looks pretty worn and the chain is more than 10% stretched.

Any idea if I would get away with one chainring and one chain? The cassette is newish and the two other chainrings don't look too bad.

Lots of brands to choose from; no one seems to sell sets any more so I'd be looking at £80 + to replace all three. I might as well get a new crankset.

The other option is to run it into the ground.

    10%? presumably you mean 1%!

    Some chain rings look pretty worn from scratch with all the profiling required for smooth shifting.

    I'd put a new chain on and see if it skips or there is any chain suck. If it does then you need new rings.

    If you want cheap, try some Stronglight Dural rings from Spa Cycles.
    More problems but still living....
